Comments:

League position: 13th This was the second time that Brighton and Hove Albion had scored more than one goal in their last 17 games in the Premier League. It was the first time they had scored three or more goals in a home game since a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on 4 December 2018. Neal Maupay's opening goal (timed at two minutes and 31 seconds) became Brighton and Hove Albion's quickest-ever goal in a game in the Premier League. At 19 years and 250 days, Aaron Connolly became the Seagulls' youngest-ever goalscorer in the Premier League and the first teenager to score a league goal for them since Jake Forster-Caskey against Charlton Athletic on 12 April 2014 in the League Championship.

Comments:

League position: 8th Tottenham Hotspur remained without a win in ten consecutive away games in the Premier League (lost eight) for the first time since December 2006. Spurs had now lost more games in all competitions in 2019 (17) than any other current team in the Premier League. Hugo Lloris' substitution became the quickest that a goalkeeper had been replaced in a game in the Premier League since he was replaced by Michel Vorm after four minutes of Leicester City's visit to White Hart Lane on 21 March 2015.
